1 1/2 cups water
1 cup white quinoa
1 cup chopped, fresh Ontario Greenhouse tomatoes
1 small carrot, peeled and finely chopped
Handful of green beans, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 small onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
3-4 Ontario greenhouse peppers, halved, stems removed and de-seeded
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (of choice – like sprouted whole grain, brown rice, gluten-free, crushed
healthy crackers, etc.)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add quinoa, cover and let simmer until about half of the water is absorbed, about 10 mins. Add the tomatoes, veggies and spices and simmer until most of liquid is absorbed and quinoa is cooked, about another 10 mins. Spoon quinoa mixture into peppers, top with breadcrumbs of choice and a bit more sea salt and black pepper. Bake on prepared baking tray for 35 mins or until a bit brown on top and peppers are cooked.

Serve immediately!
